Vanilla Forums AboutMe Plugin HTML Injection Vulnerabilities

AboutMe plugin for Vanilla Forums is prone to multiple HTML-injection vulnerabilities because it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input.

Attacker-supplied HTML and script code would run in the context of the affected browser, potentially allowing the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials or control how the site is rendered to the user. Other attacks are also possible.

AboutMe 1.1.1 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
